Post Shell-script: search item in any order


Hello altogether,

I have got the following problem:

- every line in a textfile corresponds to a data record
- now i want to search for a certain data record with grep e.g.

so far so good.

But what, if I want to use several search items (and I don't no their order in the data record) at the same time to serach for a dedicated data record??

Quasi "grep PATTERN1&PATTERN2 /home/file" whereupon it doesn't matter in which order "PATTERN1" and "PATTERN2" occurs in "/home/file".

Has anybody an idea??

I've got an easy solution interim:

grep PATTERN1 file | grep PATTERN2

Anyway thank you for answering.

Look at Regular Expressions. Perl supports them internally and it will help you find and/or parse data easily. There should be many tutorials and/or references available online.

good luck
